Querencia is a representation in cloth of the place where a heart resides.   A heart resides among the red rocks, in the dark desert night, beneath the moon, with our loved ones close.  

This piece was woven on a warp of organic cotton linen and a weft of naturally dyed cashmere and raw silk, as well as conventionally dyed raw silk.   The beautiful orange of the red rocks were dyed with sandalwood, the yellows with marigolds, fustic, blanket flower and pomegranate skins, and the browns came from black walnuts and pecan shucks.
